Top Reasons for an A/C Unit Breakdown

Because of this years’ hot summer heat, it is essential to make sure your A/C system is in ideal shape. Unfortunately, one of the worst things that can happen during this time of year is a broken Air Conditioner. Below are the main reasons given to us by our skillful technicians at Newark-Heath Heating & Cooling that can cause an Air Conditioner unit to breakdown.  

Dirty HVAC Filter

More often than not, it is a simple fix of just replacing the Air Conditioner filter. Our HVAC professionals suggest changing your A/C unit filter at least once every three months. However, during the summer months, they suggest changing the Air Conditioner filter once every thirty days. This suggestion is made because, in the summer months, your Air Conditioning unit tends to work overtime. By running more cycles and running for an extended period of time.

Thermostat Malfunction

Another typical reason for an Air Conditioning unit breakdown is the thermostat. A thermostat is one of the most important parts of the whole HVAC system. It controls all of its functions and parts to make sure your A/C unit is working correctly. Moreover, you can check if the thermostat is on the “cool/cold” setting and if the batteries in your thermostat should be changed. 

Refrigerant Leaks

A different reason that can cause an Air Conditioning unit to breakdown is a refrigerant leak. If the refrigerant solution is leaking from your Air Conditioning unit, eventually, it can cause a severe problem. However, a refrigerant leak is one of the most common problems within an Air Conditioning system. Thus, this issue can be quickly fixed on the spot by one of our friendly technicians.
